      After the EU accession in 2007, Romania need compulsory some intelligent approaches and methods for Managers recruitment and assessment, in order to promote a new Chief profile with Strategic Vision and Operational Skills.

      The market surveys demonstrate the imperative necessity to promote an assessment methodology for the managerial teams from Romania. The target of this system is to introduce an appropriate methodology oriented to the performance evaluation.

      Another priority will be also to achieve the capabilities, to avoid the social and economic crisis by the well-known methods and tools of the crisis management.

      The article presents our recent research, realized in some HR consulting missions, including case studies and workshops in Romanian industrial companies. Paradoxically, at first sight, we observe that in the top of causes of low performance of these firms is bad management (an unprofessional and in the red management) and/or less management (the almost absolute lack of a rational approach in the firmís management).

      The pilot-case studies, confirm the availability of the management evaluation methods and tools in the industrial enterprises completed with debates and workshops in the companies and in the academic environment (especially for MBA Studies).

      In this context, we focused our consulting approach and tools towards an appropriate carry out of the Gallup Strengths finder Method used for leaders and managers in the Romanian business environment.

      It is obvious the necessity to promote coordination between employers and employees, in order to improve the awareness of the environmental impact of the production systems on the working conditions and training. There are important social and ethical aspects of the economy, aiming at a sustainable development which respects the natural environment and improves the quality of life. The participation of the economists is also important, but there are still many things to be done in the training field.
